Decorative and Useful – Hang Plates on the Wall

Have you ever wished that you could decorate your kitchen cabinets and walls in such a way as to add a touch of style to them? If you have, then maybe it’s time to look into hanging plates on your walls. This can be done with minimal cost and can give your kitchen a stylish look that everyone will appreciate. In this article, I’ll tell you all you need to know about how to hang plates on the wall in order to complete this home decorating project.

If you are looking for information on how to hang plates on the wall, then you have to know that there are many different ways. In fact, I believe one of the best is through the use of hot glue. Hot glue is great because it bonds better than cold glue and it can easily be removed once it has cured completely. This is probably the cheapest way of doing this and it gives you the chance to experiment a bit with your home decorating style.

Ensure that there is no dirt, grime, or finger marks

The first step in this process is to ensure that there is no dirt, grime, or finger marks on your flat surface before beginning to install hanging plates. Firstly, you will need to prepare the flat surface by wiping it down with a damp cloth. For this, you must stick your chosen frame hanging device onto the wall with strong but gentle hot glue or wax. You will need to leave it on your flat surface for at least two hours to let all the glue dry.

Take your plate hangers and nail them

Then, you must take your plate hangers and nail them onto the wall firmly. Make sure they are firmly installed on each wall so that the plate won’t be pulled off. You might need some help from friends or family to help you hang these plates properly.

If you choose to hang the plates using anchors, it is important to attach a plate pin to the top of the anchor hole in order to keep the plate in place. The plate is then placed onto the nail and it is driven into the wall at an angle. Now you can start to paint the room if you like. However, if you are going to do this in the winter months, I would recommend not using too much paint. This could possibly cause the paint to chip off. The plates on the wall will make a beautiful focal point of the room of your choice.

Glue them onto the wall

Once the plates are securely mounted, the next thing you have to do is to glue them onto the wall. Again, make sure they are securely held onto the wall and you may want to double-sided glue them onto the back of the plate. Once the glue dries, you will want to attach it to the wall using either wall anchors or drywall screws.

You can either purchase an inexpensive glue gun or you can make one yourself. To do this, all you will need is a glue gun with a long enough handle so that you do not have to stretch. If you don’t feel confident about trying to make one on your own, I would suggest that you buy a cheap glue gun from your local craft store. This will be useful in case you run into a bit of trouble when attaching the plates to the wall. Once you have the right tool in your hand, you are ready to start your project.

Decorate them

The last step involves some simple decoration. This is also a chance to add some color to your home. As you look through the catalogs at stores like Walmart and Target, you will see numerous different types of plates hangers. Once you have decided on which type of hanger you would like to use, you will want to purchase some extra clips and hangers in your favorite color. Now all you have to do is simply apply the super glue to your clips and hangers and you are done. I highly recommend this method as it adds a creative finishing touch to any home decorating project.
